PT. PA CSR Indonesia is dedicated to assisting industries with strategic CSR approaches that both improve people’s lives and perspectives as well as substantially add to an industry’s bottom line. Moreover, in emerging economies, strategic CSR provides a ‘license to operate’ while avoiding less legal environments. PA was privileged to present this case to then Governor of Jakarta, Joko Widodo. A wide reaching and extensive network allows PA clients to positively and constructively engage with all key stakeholders in Indonesia in virtually any industrial sector – including tourism. PT. PA CSR Indonesia uses PA’s global knowledge and experience with advanced technologies to engage with regulatory authorities and society while securing the highest levels of political support.

Indonesia will be the world’s fourth largest economy by 2050, according to PwC and McKinsey. The brilliant speech by President Joko Widodo on 14 July 2019 opens the road to this success. The key elements of the President’s new policy are education, training, employment, technological progress, infrastructure and port development, and – of course – export.

The 2018 World Bank report on Indonesia’s economy identifies the required changes, particularly in the current State-Owned Enterprises structure, management practices, and legal security. The 2019 ‘update’ confirms an optimistic future for Indonesia. PA is privileged to work closely with experts of all relevant international and national institutions and organizations through conferences, seminars, and study groups – either as requested by the government or as proposed by important institutions such as the Institution of Engineers Indonesia (PII).
